Just out of curiosity, what would happen if I pushed the button while the computer was on?
Thanks for your help!

I don't think anyone has ever tried it wink.gif

I have the Asrock Extreme 6 and 3570k, have overclocked as high as 4.8 but normally keep it at 4.6 for everyday use.My Question is can I increase my chances of a higher overclock by lowering my ram speed which is 2133? The lowest I can get it to run is 1066...and I have seen some peeps here who run their ram slow.

Sometimes RAM speed can affect the stability of your system. Running it at lower speeds will not hurt anything and very well could help you achieve a higher overclock. I am going to assume you are going to undervolt your ram as well as underclock it. Taking juice away from your ram and giving it your cpu can only help you increase your overclock. This by no means makes your computer run "faster" . You have to ask yourself if it is worth running your ram slower to increase your cpu speed. If you want it faster for bragging rights then of course do it. Will it actually make the computer feel faster? That can be questionable.

What version is the Intel mei firmware at present on the z77 extreme4 motherbaord.
post #2096 of 3170
Sorted out the usb headset not powering down at shutdown on win8. I had to enable Deep Sleep in the bios.
post #2097 of 3170
So I just got an idle/low load WHEA error after a few months with these settings and no whea errors

4.5 ghz (45x multi) 1.285 vcore / LLC level 3 (asrock extreme 4 z77)

I bumped up my vcore to 1.290 bios its at 1.232/1.240 full load.

Do I need to change my LLC level to something else? Or did I just probably need that small vcore boost? Again I had been stable with these settings for a few months in all kinds of games.

The oc settings were checked plenty of 12 hr + runs w/ prime 95. Guess i'm gonna have to prime again tonight.

I hope I didn't degrade.....

Also I am starting to wonder if sometimes WHEA errors are bogus and just generated somehow by the OS having an issue. I know most of the time it means you need more vcore... but this latest incident makes me wonder


so basically my question is, is LLC level 3 the correct setting for me? or do I just likely need a bit more vcore.

I use LLC 2. I was using level 3 awhile back. but when I started shooting for a higher overclock I went with level 2 to keep the vdroop from dropping too low. higher overclock as in 5 ghz.

Cool So you think LLC 3 is good for my current vdroop ?

Also do you guys know anything about cheap capacitors being used in the z77 extreme 4? someone just told me there is a rumor going around...

So I would use llc 2. With a higher llc like 1 or 2 you can sometimes get away with lower v core. I will send you a pm when I get home from work in 2 hours.
